Not as fancy as some here, but I am definitely looking forward to taking it out hunting. I may just go try to take a coyote with it today.

My 1st M70:

1971 M70 Mannlicher, .30-06 Springfield
Talley Lightweight Ring-Base Set
Weaver 1-3x

Frank,

What's the story on the mule deer? Looks like a Mexico buck



Actually the 3 deer you see all came from Sonora ol' Mexico- the 2 mule deer and the Coues on the bottom. The 2 shown I shot back to back with one of my Weaver Pre 64 28" & 26". I shot a third one the following year (same rifle)- a nice 7 x 5.

18.5". I've only shot a box through it but it does pretty good. Going to work up some loads with a faster burning powder in order to try to get more complete ignition.

Kinda funny story on this one. A friend bought it at a gunshow I was working a few years ago. Brought it over and was so excited about it. I asked him,"why would you want that gaudy thing?" After handling it a few times, I couldnt believe how well it fit me, and the lightness of it! Long story short, its mine now. Its a 70 fw in 270, 1954. Mounted a Leupold compact 3x9 on. Have not shot it yet, but I think / hope it will shoot fine!

A few weeks ago, I asked for help from the Campfire members to find a good Model 70 in 300 H&H. I advertised in the classified as a WTB.

Well, I had a few offers from the members who owned 300 H&Hs, but didn't see anything that that really excited me.

I had several members refer me to Perry County Fireams in Central PA, and I gave them a call. They actually had several to pick from and I chose a 1955 with a raised comb and in 95 to 97% condition.

I also had a member offer a couple of boxes period W-W 180 gr Silvertip Ammo that I accepted.

Thanks to all that contributed.

Have a look.

Nice one, Don! I'm digging that retro ammo, too. Let us know how it shoots. What scope you going to use?

Thanks guys.

I would highly recommend Perry County Firearms. As you all know, they aren't cheap, but they specialize in pre-64 Model 70s.

bearstalker. It is a toss up as to whether I shoot this one or not.

I really don't need to, but it is awfully tempting.

Poconojack. Thanks again for the tip.

Don

First time here I have a few mod 70's u guys may like.

61' 06 target

54' 06 target in sporter stock, and the 61'target in marksman stock, the 54' is my Carlos Hathcock SW GA beanpatch whitetail hammer. I have never pulled the trigger with that gun that was not bang flop, DRT .

59' Varminter in 220 swift, my all time favorite crow slayer
. I just ran across a signed target from 3-10-09 where I shot a 5 shot 1, 1/8" 300 yard using Rem 50 gr poly tip boat tail factory ammo( swift). it was 87 deg late and dead calm, not bad for 50's technology.
56' Varminter in .243 win. . Ill save a few for later all these guns are easy sub MOA and have shot 5 shot sub .5 on perfect days with pet factory ammo.
